Besides visiting Graceland there was another thing a wanted to go see in Memphis: The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel.
The Lorraine Motel is where Dr. Martin Luther King jr.was assassinated in front of his motel room on April 4, 1968. This museum is not only about MLK, but also traces the history of the Civil Rights Movement from the 17th century to the present. And you also get to have a look inside room 306, where MLK stayed in April 1968.
This museum was very interesting, we spend more than 3 hours inside listening to the audiotour and reading everything that was on display.
Of course I made a photo of the outside of Motel Lorraine, a picture that (I think) everyone has seen before. But I could not leave without this, almost, cliché photo. I am actually very pleased with how it turned out in black and white:
